In 2008 Jeff Jank asked me to make a Heliocentrics podcast for stones throw to help promote the guys 1st album. It was one of my most fun & unique mixes.
Here we are 5 years later in 2013 & again, I was asked to make a mix of some of the bands newest material from their superb album entitled “13 degrees of reality” that was just released & i was even granted access to some of the unreleased sessions that I had been hearing so much about for so many years from Egon.
It is an honor that I present this, (my newest mix) HELIO GLK to the world. My chopped up / re edited madness from the band they call The Heliocentrics!
Sherlock x Ukiyo-e Japanese woodblock print for the Lets Draw Sherlock famous works project!
The original artwork, c.1890, is by Ogata Gekko. He’s not quite a well-known artist outside of Japan nor is this piece the most famous of his body of work. But I like it tremendously because cherry blossoms are my favourite and also in season! His other works are equally beautiful though, and you can browse a large collection of his prints here if you’re interested! This particular artwork is part of his Fujin Fuzoku Zukushi series, which basically focus on women idling about doing nothing much. I feel like Sherlock would have hated it :)
Also! If you’re interested in how a woodblock print gets made in the traditional way, you should watch this crazy amazing video
